U.S. is Getting Fatter - Except in Oregon?

The Trust for America's Health has just released its Obesity U.S.A. by State Index. Every state had a raise in their obesity rates, except Oregon. The FatPride Times is based out of Oregon and has to question the methodology used in this research. I have seen things here. Mississippi had the highest rate of obesity, with 29.5 percent of adults classified as obese in 2004. In Colorado, the slimmest state, just 16 percent of adults are obese. Oregon was unchanged at 21 percent.

I refuse to buy into this premediated madness...

I was NOT asked to participate in this state by state poll, therefore I will not purchase or read this periodical. Until I am asked or told to participate, then I may consider it's results, until then...forget it. I will go to Sonic 24/7 365 days a year and feast on all that it has to offer!
